CPU underperforming, Temps reading as extremely high when they aren't
Hi, I have a problem with my processor. I switched my mobo and cpu out recently for a z68 mobo and an i5 2500k. However, when i tried to play battlefield 3, the performance was horrible, significantly worse than on my old cpu. I figured out that my temps are apparently hovering between 75c and 85c while idling. I know that it isn't that hot because the heat sink is literally almost cool to the touch. I think that it's misreading my temps and underclocking the processor to prevent it from overheating or something. I don't even really know if it does that it's just my theory because I know that the temperature isn't that high. Any ideas out there?
If anyone needs more info just let me know.

If it is reading that high it should be under clocking! RMA motherboard.
I RMA'd it the first time because they sent me one with a broken PCI slot. Can you RMA twice?
